I hope you have a tablet. :) Here's a few excellent tutorials provided by khayman:

Steeldolphin.com
Steeldolphin has some great tutorials for beginners, including a walkthrough of a digital painting, painting clouds (a must for any BGII portrait creator), preparing lineart for colouring, Colour Theory Primer, Scanning Lineart and more.

Dubtastic.com
This one uses the above tutorials (especially the digital painting walkthrough) as a starting point; be aware that this does contain graphic imagery, so not those for the terribly faint-hearted. A good look at the whole process of creating a painting from scratch.

IDigitalEmotion.com Tutorial 1
A great tutorial for the beginner, this one also runs through the creation of a simple painting from sketching to finished piece. Definately worth a look for a beginner, maybe not if you've got more experience!

IDigitalEmotion.com Tutorial 2
Another great tutorial; this one for a slightly more advanced user. Details layers, colouring using layers and more!

IDigitalEmotion.com Tutorial 3
A more advanced tutorial, running from sketch-til-final. Definately worth a look - especially if you're a fan of Final Fantasy! Details detailing (:rolleyes:), painting clouds, skin tones, and water, as well as many other skills.

Polykarbon.com
Many drawing tutorials, a must for any artist! Anatomy, fabric, and more.

Worth1000.com
Down and dirty photo colourization using gradients. Not a necessary look, but useful!

AbsoluteCross.com
AbsoluteCross.com has some fantastic tutorials on a wide variety of artistic subjects - mainly for things such as website design and layout design, however. One which is definately worth a look which isn't one of those is Colorizing Photos, which teaches you how to use the Mask feature. Definately worth a look!


Have any more? Post them here!

Wow, some of those look like kickass tutorials, I have to take a closer look at the myself - especially the cloud painting tuts. Some of those were already familiar to me, but here I have some tutorials people might also find useful.

Makani's Face Tutorial
Makani is probably the best Harry Potter fanart drawer evar, and her style is amazing. This is very funny but still very useful basic face drawing tutorial - quite cartoonish, but still might help with proportions and expressions.

Makani's Color Tutorial
Makani admiration continues! This tutorial is useful for beginners who wonder how to make a pencil sketch scan to lineart and color it. Very useful basics once again. And funny.

GFXartist.com has some seriously cool but quite advanced tutorials made by professionals. If nothing else, they're fun to browse through in awe.

Guide to Human Types part 1 and Guide to Human Types part 2
This very interesting tutorial shows the anatomical differences between human races. Very inspiring!

Guide to Human Types Addendum
More of the same, but this talks about eye and skin colors, hair, and face.

Drawing the basic female torso with pencil.

Painting Folds in Clothing by kry1
By the wonderful kry1, this is a fantastic tutorial for those wanting to improve their clothing skills! Don't let your mum dress your characters - dress them yourself! ;)

Jason Manley's IWD Portrait Tutorial
This tutorial is by Jason Manley, the artist who did the portraits for Icewind Dale. It covers a great deal of aspects, as well as a very interested take on digital painting - out of all these tutorials, a must for all IE portrait artists!

Jason Manley's site. Hundreds of tutorials, and you can post your work for feedback from professional and aspiring artists alike. Check out the wiki as well as the tutorial subforum - last I checked, they had about all of the Loomis books up in .pdf for download. Chalk full of good information.

http://www.cgsociety.org/

Some good tutorials in the forum here. Plenty else to check out, as well.

http://www.khulsey.com/student.html

More tutorials.

Business advice for artists. Very helpful, if perhaps not the sort of tutorial everyone is interested in.

Tips and tech section of the penciljack.com forums. Mainly geared towards comics, but there's some helpful advice for digital painters there, too.

Pure inspiration.

Portrait-Artist is "an old friend" of mine. Some years back I used that site's fantastic tutorials a lot, and now I half-accidentally bumped into it once more. It concentrates on traditional media, but is a fantastic recourse and help for everyone wishing to draw people and especially portraits.

I haven't been here for ages :D

Here is my list of various tutorials, mainly devoted to digital painting but also a lot on anatomy:

http://sirielle.devi...ournal/8010030/

It also links to even larger tutorial's list, enjoy!

Some may repeat to the links you've already gave, as human type's guides. And Sirielle is me, of course.

For those that like to draw digital paintings, I would recommend the fantastic "watch and learn" tutorials by Carlos Cabrera.

First of all, dear ghostruler, www.google.com. Second of all, check these tutorials on vexels.org. Vexels.org has a lot of great tutorials, and it's a very nice and beautiful site otherwise too. :)

Bumped into a couple of tutorials again. This one is about painting hair, and it's pretty much how I do it. Another wonderful hair tutorial, how to paint lips, and how to draw the human eye.

Very helpful for portrait artists for example.

Amaurea provided some tips (and a PSP script) about "Baldurising" portraits here.

Also, anyone know what happened to these links?

That'd be great. Couldn't tell if the links were broken or if they just pointed to stuff I couldn't access.

Pixelbrush is a great new resources and tutorials website by famous painting duo Natascha Röösli and Henning Ludvigsen, created for the first year anniversary of their forums. A very friendly community with lots of artistic talent, definitely worth taking a look at. (And while you're at it, check out Tascha and Henning's art; just amazing.)

To make it easier for people to find, here are the tutorials that have been made by me and Enkida on 'Baldurizing' folk:

1. Enkida's Tutorial
2. Enkida's other Tutorial
3. My lazy quick tutorial Part 1
4. My lazy quick tutorial Part 2

P.s, I wasn't intending on making a tutorial and was just going to post up the original picture Sanctifer was using as a way to explain some things, but one thing led to another and I just ened up making a tutorial.

EDIT: Also, a lot of those links listed don't work. :unsure:

*Double edit due to major spelling errors*
